Surgical microscope is also known as operating microscope and is an optical microscope specially designed and developed to be used in a surgical setting, normally to perform microsurgery. It provides freedom of movement to the surgeon, while performing critical medical surgeries. This optical medical instrument specially designed for 3D visualization of an undergoing surgery. A compact optical unit provides sharply focused and clear images and the modular system delivers the surgeon optimum maneuverability.
Major growth factors such as surging use of fluorescence image-guided surgery, increasing number of surgeries and rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries, technological advancements in healthcare settings, and advancements microscopy solutions are accredited to the growth of surgical microscope market. Likewise, rising growth opportunities in developing markets and broadened applications of operating microscopes are further likely to expand growth of the market in the coming years. However, high cost of advanced operating microscopes and heavy custom duties on medical devices are some of the restraining factors that could hamper the growth of the market.

The report also studies the impact of pandemic on global economies, international trade, business investments, GDP and marketing strategies of key players present in the market. COVID-19 impact on the surgical microscopes market was moderate owing to the postponement and cancellation of various surgical procedures.
The study analyses global surgical microscopes market based on application, end user and geography.
Major applications of the surgical microscopes market are neuro and spine surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, ophthalmology, gynecology and urology, oncology, ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgery, dentistry, and others. In 2021 , the neuro and spine surgery segment is accounted for the largest share of the global surgical microscopes market. However, oncology is likely to be the fastest-growing segment. Factors such as growing research and development activities on targeted cell labeling and tissue clearing for brain functions and increasing demand for surgical microscopes for microsurgeries of the spine and brain are the major drivers behind the growth of the neuro & spine surgery segment.
Hospitals and outpatient facilities are major end users of the global surgical microscopes market. Hospital end user segment dominated the market in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Increasing number of hospitals across the globe, increasing use of surgical microscopes in complex ENT, neurology, and dental processes, and implementation of less-invasive surgical devices during MIS processes in hospitals are major factors that accredited to the segment growth.
Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America held the largest market share of global surgical microscopes market and is likely to dominate the market over the estimated time frame. Well-established healthcare industry of the region, increasing investment in the healthcare facilities, need for high-speed diagnostics, and surge in the number of surgeries are major growth factors behind the growth of the market in North America region.
The major key players of market include Novartis Ag, Danaher Corporation, Topcon Corporation, Carl Zeiss AG, Hagg-Streit Surgical GMBH (MÖLLER-WEDEL GMBH), Accu-Scope Inc, Alltion (Wuzhou) Co., Ltd, Arri Medical (Arri Group), Karl Kaps GmbH & Co. Kg and Takagi Seiko Co. Ltd among others.
October 2021: Leica Microsystems launched a new generation of the M320 dental microscope for micro-dentistry. The microscope camera delivers clear videos and images which dentists can display directly on a 4K monitor in the operating room to illustrate the diagnosis and available treatment options with an example picture or video.
October 2020: TAKAgi Seiko Co., LTD. announced the launch of OM-6 surgical microscopes. This microscope provides the LED light source in the entry-level/compact ophthalmic surgical microscopes and delivers solutions to the problem of bulb burnout. This development helped the company in strengthening its product offerings and strengthened its market presence.
September 2020: True Digital Surgery (TDS) and Aesculap, Inc announced that the Aesculap Aeos, a robotic digital microscope is now available in the United States. This advanced platform allows surgeons to execute precision movements in certain procedures, including spine, neurosurgery, and ear, nose and throat operations, through a multi-axis robotic arm.
The study analyses global surgical microscopes market based on application, end user, and geography. Major applications of the surgical microscopes market are neuro and spine surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, ophthalmology, gynecology and urology, oncology, ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgery, dentistry, and others. The neuro and spine surgery segment is likely to dominate the market over the forecast period. Increased adoption of surgical microscopes to perform neuro and spine surgeries is attributed to the market growth. Hospitals and outpatient facilities are major end users of the global surgical microscopes market. The hospitals segment is likely to register fastest growth in years to come owing to the growing adoption of advanced medical instruments in the hospitals across the globe. Geographically, the study is comprised of the key countries of North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World.
